Erik

Kriek

(1966 - Amsterdam) studied illustration and graphic arts at the Rietveld Academy for Art and Design in Amsterdam. Ever since graduating in 1991 he has been working as a free-lance illustrator and has also achieved (inter) national acclaim as a comics author for his ongoing ‘silent’ comicbook series Gutsman, stories centered around a faux-superhero and the troubled relationship with Tigra, his scantily clad girlfriend. In 2006, Gutsman was even brought to the stage as a ‘silent’ music-theatre piece, combining both dance and mime. In 2008 Kriek received the ‘Stripschapprijs’ for his entire oeuvre. Erik Kriek lives and works in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, together with his girlfriend, their son, their cat Pip and an ever expanding collection of toys…

Tom Tom Gauld is a cartoonist and illustrator. He draws a weekly cartoon for the Guardian newspaper and has created a number of comic books. His most recent book is a graphic novel titled Goliath. In Poland published as Goliat by Centrala. He lives and works in London. www.tomgauld.com

Gauld


Tim

Molloy

Tim Molloy is a 30 year old comic artist from New Zealand who is now living and working in Melbourne, Australia. He has been producing comics for almost two decades now with numerous self-published and obscure periodicals to his name. He has also been published in numerous magazines, collections, newspapers and telephone books. His main influences are the Surrealists and Symbolists, dreams, the Occult, and travel. For the later part of his ‘career’ he has specialized in the art of silent comics. He is currently working on a couple of new books that he hopes will take him over the fence from self-published unheard of comics loser to super celebrity comics God status! We all have to have dreams. When not making comic books, he fronts Scifidelic Pre-Apocalyptic Blues Pop band “PLAGUE DOCTOR”, and wrangles baboons.
